Hi, I think it's time to step out from the shadows, and introduce myself.
Finding Defold was quite coincidental, but it was perfect timing. Last month I decided to try picking up gamedev, yet again, and was on the lookout for good tools. I had rounded up the usual suspects, and also branched out to some of the 2d engines. When I heard the GDC news about Defold, I decided to check it out. And the fact that I made my 4 years old sons day, when he could play "Run Samuel Run", based on the Starting Tutorial, with my 2 year old son as the main character sealed the deal. Two days after I had first heard about Defold, and taking into consideration that I didn't know Lua, that impressed me. Defold makes it really fun to learn and create, without feeling like a toy.
I will end the wall of text now, but I'd like to finish by saying thank you to all of you guys working on Defold, and also all of you on the forum. It might be young, but there's definitively a growing community of friendly people here. Keep up the awesomeness!
